Mon Arts Center hosts school art exhibition

MORGANTOWN — The Monongalia Arts Center (MAC) hosted its annual Monongalia County Schools Visual Arts Exhibition on Friday evening.

An opening reception was held from 5-7 p.m. featuring a local band performance.

Area teachers selected the most visually enticing pieces of artwork to be displayed in the center.

The artwork was produced in the 2017-’18 academic school year by local students in grades K-10.

When asked about the event, lobby manager Daniel Gibbons said, “I think we have more people for this show than any.”

Gibbons was pleased to have many community members show up early to the reception of one of the largest events of the year.

The public event is free and selections will be displayed through May 25.

MAC is located at 107 High St. in downtown Morgantown. Info: 304-292-3325 or info@monartscenter.com. It is open 11 a.m.-7 p.m. Monday-Friday, 11 a.m.-4 p.m. Saturday and Sunday by appointment only.
